Roy will (hopefully) be working on making sure our players don't get complacent like they did when decleared safe* last season.
If we can get our rhythm back on sunday against newcastle, and go on to beat Everton the week following (and there is absolutely NO reason why we should not be able to) then thats two teams above us that we could take points off. These could be looked as as "six-pointers" for the purposes of climbing up the table.
Games against QPR, Villa, Blackburn and Bolton are all winnable games. The games against City, Liverpool and Arsenal will be harder, but a draw from one would be feasible.
Breaking the top ten would be a massive achievement. More money would come in. We would be an attrcactive side to players for the next season. Its time to build and getting a top ten place would be a huge foundation for next season.
*In my humble opinion of course. That wolves loss for one, should never have happened.....
